Michael Jr.

Hailed as one of today’s most gifted comedians, Michael Jr. discovered his talent when a movie theater projector malfunctioned and he took center stage to entertain the crowd. He has performed on some of comedy’s biggest stages and all over TV including “The Tonight Show,” “Comedy Central,” “The Late, Late Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel” and many more. Michael's versatility puts him in high demand at major universities such as Notre Dame, churches, corporate events and youth rallies. His broad appeal has enabled him to author a children's book – “The Parts We Play,” and to be featured in the wildly successful comedy DVD “Thou Shalt Laugh.” He made his directorial debut with the documentary “Comedy: The Road Less Traveled.”
